10am: Little Somethings: a mischievous tale of the unexpected!
Award-winning author Jill Lewis (actually two people!) and illustrator Ali Pye are ready to entertain you with music, performance and art to tell the story of the Greedy Guzzler looking for a little something to satisfy his appetite. Imaginative and engaging, there's also a little gentle hint that appearances can be deceptive. For ages 4 to 7.

11am: Andy Day: Puzzles, Problems and Paradoxes in Poetry!
Using a deceptively simple poem from Thoughtings, ‘The Other Hand' workshop will challenge the intuitions of children and any adults present – although a session in philosophy, the audience will be moving about, testing things out and interacting with each other while puzzling together. Supported by The Philosophy Foundation. For ages 7-11.
